As a popular seaside town and resort on the South Coast, Weymouth is loved by locals and visitors alike for its rich and varied history. The town was particularly favoured by the Georgians, who popularised the seaside holiday and contributed a wealth of architecture to the town. Weymouth's prominent fishing industry and proximity to the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage site, add to its unique appeal. In more recent years, the town has played host to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and a variety of other sports tournaments and championships. For a number of reasons, Weymouth is foremost in the minds of many. Join Weymouth-born Eddie Prowse for a tour around the town and the surrounding areas, from its inns and breweries to the harbour and heritage sites. Carefully selected by the author from his twenty-five-year-old collection of postcards, prints and photographs, each image offers a fascinating record of the town and its people captured by early photographers who took to the streets in the endeavour to document the town in all its glory.
